Travel Photos: Paragliding in Okinawa
The highway winds sharply, left and right up steep hills and down in valleys.
All of a sudden, bright colors go flying around in the blue skies.
SKREECH, went me and the brakes and tires.
This was worth getting off the road and grabbing some cameras to shoot.
Other folks got the same idea. It was a sight to see.
Imagine literally getting your head in the clouds and flying with the birds.
Doesn't that look like fun ?
Nobody crashed while I was watching them.
They would get real close to the ocean then, catch a breeze bringing them back up the mountain.
Just out of curiosity, I did a search on Paragliding, Nanjo, Okinawa.
It seems, they have a school for this sport.
Thanks to Okinawa2Go, I can give you a link.
The first question I would ask the teacher is this:
How do you go to the restroom when you're up in those contraptions ?
